The Elizabeth Munsterberg Koppitz fellowship assists doctoral students in the psychology field advance their scholarly research. One requirement of this fellowship: the work the student does must contribute to the advancement of knowledge in pediatric, child-clinical, school, educational and developmental psychopathology.

Scholarship Overview

The Munsterberg Koppitz Fellowship was created to provide financial support for innovative research and programs that advance the ability of psychology to aid human potential and improve the lives of humans well into the future. This fellowship is intended only for doctoral students.

The application packet must have the student’s curriculum vitae, a proposal abstract that addresses the criteria, which has been outlined by the American Psychological Foundation and a letter of recommendation from the student’s adviser that includes verification of the nomination criteria listed. This letter of recommendation should cover one page maximum.

Scholarship Requirements

The criteria for potential nominees include:

•Achievement of doctoral candidacy when the fellowship begins.
•Student must be a doctoral candidate studying child psychology.
•The winning student must have tuition support from their doctoral program.
•If human study participants are involved, the doctoral candidate must receive IRB approval from their host institution before funding is awarded.

The proposal itself should have 1-inch margins and use Times new Roman, 12–point font. The fellowship recipient must include the relevant background, specific aims for the research, a literature review and the significance of their project. This should be no longer than two pages.
